    EVERYONE,

    I used my email account last night while I was on this site, someone stole my email account information.

    I checked my hotmail account an email was sent at 5 am this morning saying my password was changed. I am not sure if someone is stealing the information from this site, but to be warned please change your password immediatly so that your information is not stolen as well.

    I reported it to phishing, abuse, and security on yahoo. I am hoping this does not happen to you.

    If this has happend to you were you able to get your account back?? How did you do it, I can not call today because it is Sunday. UGGGHHHHHHHHH all my wedding information so upset. I have my fiance calling the bank hourly just in case any money is stolen. This could not happen at a worse time just got engaged on Friday. (tears rolling on my face)

    thanks
    melissa

    i'm confused...which account did you use to register on the forum? hotmail or yahoo?

    so someone requested a p/w change for the forum, then hacked into your yahoo account to complete the p/w change to the forum? but you were still able to get onto the forum even though the p/w was changed?

    melissa,

    i think you may be confused because i just checked and you used your hotmail account to register so how would someone on BDW know what your yahoo account was? i just checked in your registration information and i have no idea what your yahoo account info is.

      I have changed my email on this forum I have also changed my password on my hotmail. I cannot get into my yahoo account. I had page open in this forum and a page open in my email- was email my mom last night wedding information. logged out last night, had some problems with this forum last night was making my computer explorer shut down. Got on the computer this afternoon could not get into my yahoo account. I am not saying it happend from this site, I am just wanted people to be warned to go to their email accounts and make a new password so that this does not happen to you. I am not blaming best destination wedding forum just warning others to change their passwords ASAP I now know I will be changing my password monthly so that this does not happen just a matter of trying to get my yahoo account back.

      then you may have a virus on your computer or something but it isnt assocaited with the forum. no one else has had any problems like that. also, the forum does ask that you change your pw once in awhile...

        okay thanks but have everyone change their personal email not the forum email just to be safe so that this does not happen to them, I do not believe it is anyone here at all I think something happend in my yahoo account not this site at all.
